Yeah, so when you saw the same 'Revenge of the Sith' type make up in 'Empire', it took me out of the movie for a second. What a terrible change.

While it mildy affected the continuity of the actors playing Emperor, I thought the original 'Emperor' from ESB was ominous and had better line readings than the new footage with Ian McDiarmd.
